The building envelope
consists of the exterior walls, windows, doors, roofs, and floors.
In this scenario, an attempt is made to achieve 50% site energy use reduction using only the bundle of core technologies: building envelope
insulation, increased airtightness, heat recovery, improved lighting design and technologies, and increased efficiency of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) and electrical systems.
The author has organized the main body of his text in eight chapters devoted to the buildingAEs envelope as a component of building design, the physics of energy conversions in the building envelope
on a microscopic level, the numerical study of transfer in building envelope
components, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
The United States Department of Energy states that homes built using the EPS building envelope
system saved an average of 50-70% on annual heating and cooling costs!
The newly published energy standard from ASHRAE and IES contains significant changes to lighting requirements within its lighting, building envelope
and energy cost budget sections.
ATLANTA -- The newly published ASHRAE/ IES Standard 90.1-2013 includes major changes to requirements for building envelope
